Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with GDPR Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter a. based on your voluntarily given consent and otherwise in accordance with GDPR Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter b., in addition insofar as the data processing is necessary for the performance of the contract, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures carried out in response to your request.

Section 5: Use of Google Maps

(1) On this website we use the services of Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently. The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is GDPR Art. 6 (1) p. 1 letter f. The legitimate interest lies in the appealing presentation of our online offers and in an easy findability of the places indicated by us on the website.

(2) By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under Section 2 of this statement are transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out (even for users who are not logged in) specifically to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

(3) The deviating data protection regulations of Google Inc. apply. Further information on the data protection guidelines of Google Inc. can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

(4) It is not excluded that data processing by Google Inc. also takes place outside the European Union, therefore a corresponding EU standard contract (adequate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries) has been concluded. The EU standard contractual clauses used can be accessed via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.


Section 6: Use of Wufoo

(1) We use the form service Wufoo, a US web form application from the provider SurveyMonkey Europe UC, Second Floor, 2 Shelbourne Buildings, Shelbourne Road, Dublin, Ireland. We use the service to make our contact form more appealing. The legal basis for the integration of this service in our website is GDPR Section 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f. Our legitimate interest lies in the appealing presentation of our online offers.

(2) By integrating Wufoo, the content you enter in our contact form is stored on servers of the provider SurveyMonkey Europe UC. A transmission to the provider takes place only when you submit the form.

(3) For the processing of your data on the servers of the provider SurveyMonkey Europe UC, the deviating data protection provisions of this provider apply, which you can find at http://www.wufoo.com/privacy/.

(4) The storage of your data on a SurveyMonkey Europe UC server outside the EU, in particular in the USA, cannot be ruled out, so a corresponding EU standard contract (adequate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries) has been concluded. You can view the EU standard contractual clauses used via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.


Section 7: Data security

During the website visit, we use the widespread SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the closed key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.


Section 8: Your rights

(1) You have the following rights with respect to personal data concerning you:


  • Right to information,
  • Right of rectification or erasure,
  • Right to restriction of processing,
  • Right to appeal against processing,

Section 9: Revocation of consent to the processing of personal data

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this consent at any time by sending an e-mail to Thomas.Hoehle@IT-Testing.de. Such a revocation affects the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us and has the effect that further processing of your data based solely on your consent will no longer take place. The lawfulness of the processing carried out under consent until the revocation, however, remains unaffected.


Section 10: Right of objection

If your personal data is processed by us based on legitimate interests pursuant to GDPR Art. 6 (1) p. 1 letter f., you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to GDPR Art. 21, if there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation. When exercising such an appeal, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds based on which we will continue the processing. Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time without giving reasons. In this case, you have a general right of objection, which will be implemented by us without requiring reasons. If you wish to exercise your right to object, simply send an email to: Thomas.Hoehle@IT-Testing.de.
